With a focus on gender-based research, this book offers a unique look at the perception of gender and the impact of gender biases and predispositions on the couple and the client-therapist relationship. The book offers essential theoretical coverage with an emphasis on application. An in-depth case study takes readers through specific phases of couples therapy, from the first interview through termination, and always through the "lens" of gender. The book's concrete guidelines for assessment and intervention--particularly regarding common impasses in the treatment process--is especially helpful in the examination of this growing and ever-changing field.
